Here’s to Challenging Ourselves!

Lila Glansberg, A-Watch, Sailing Intern

Study Abroad at Sea

Note: All aboard Cramer are well today, riding out the storm at anchor in the Sakonnet River. Their plan is to remain at anchor tonight and get underway for sea early Friday morning pending weather updates.


Hello, landlubbers!  This is Lila; a deckhand (sailing intern), SEA alum (shout out to S-278!), and overall wind enthusiast.  I was lucky enough to join the crew a day before we set sail.

Galley Magic

Kim Nutt, Steward

Hello all! Kim here from the galley of the SSV Corwith Cramer! The last few days have felt like a dream as we finally shoved off from Dyer’s dock and made it out into Vineyard Sound. My outstanding assistant steward (Sarah Witcher!), intern stewards (Jen, Justin, and Wika), along with countless other helpers and dish technicians, have made working in the galley a true joy!

Humbled

Jillian Galloway, C Watch, Bowdoin College

Spend a Semester at Sea

Hello!

Today, we departed Nuku’alofa under a hot afternoon sun and fair wind. The dock where the ship has spent the past few days moored is tantalizingly close to the outer islands and light green coral reefs, so to find myself traveling back onto greeny blue water is a long-awaited treat. It’s a tall order to report out all that I have experienced in the past week, so to sum it up I will simply say I am humbled.

Howdy friends,

Roots in Earth and Water

Emerging from the doghouse, I was greeted by a cool morning breeze that brushed from the port side of the deck. Having just completed the 0600 boat check, I found that the sunrise had begun while I was below deck. Moving to the rail, I fell into conversation with my 0500-0630 dock watch buddy Zuri, when I noticed a spot of white foam in the distance.

Under the moonlight of Friday, October 11, 2019, I eagerly trekked across Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai (HTHH) with a team from Sea Education Association (SEA) and NASA to complete one final mission: to measure temperatures around the perimeter of the volcano’s crater lake.
